Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller – Retail Value $17.99 (On Amazon for $10.29)

Owlcrate-March-2017-0015

Book Summary from Amazon:

Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map―the key to a legendary treasure trove―seventeen-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship.

More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing standing between her and the map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.

In Daughter of the Pirate King, debut author Tricia Levenseller blends action, adventure, romance, and a little bit of magic into a thrilling YA pirate tale.

This book also came with a letter from the author and a signed bookplate sticker:

And a temporary tattoo:

I loved this book! I finished it in a day. It is one of those books that is just fun to read, and it has great pacing, too. (And it’s great to get a YA book in a genre that hasn’t been overdone. Yay for pirates!)

Bookish goodies time!

OwlCrate X Simply Gilded Mermaid Washi Tape – Value $4.50

Owlcrate-March-2017-0027

This is an exclusive design for OwlCrate subscribers, and it’s perfectly fitting for the book. (Plus who wouldn’t want gold foil mermaid washi tape?)

Owlcrate-March-2017-0023

Kitch Studios Tea Towel – Value $11

Owlcrate-March-2017-0024

This tea towel has a ship illustration and the quote, “a ship is always safe at shore, but that is not what it’s built for.”

Owlcrate-March-2017-0025

This dish towel is 100% cotton and machine washable, too.

Boy Girl Party Notepad – Value $8

Owlcrate-March-2017-0021

(Subscribers will receive one of two exclusive notepads.) I love Boy Girl Party designs, so this little notebook is a treat! How cute is that octopus?

Owlcrate-March-2017-0022

And the notepad came with a coupon code for their shop, too. (I think I’m going to use my code to buy this amazing Sloth To Do List notepad!)

The Geeky Cauldron Compass Pendant Necklace – Value $12?

Owlcrate-March-2017-0019

This necklace measures about 28 inches long. (The pendant adds another 2 inches.)

Owlcrate-March-2017-0017

The faux compass has a domed glass piece that gives it dimension and a more antique look:

Owlcrate-March-2017-0018

This item might not fit my jewelry style (I think I’m way out of their target demographic), but it ties into the theme so well!

Owlcrate-March-2017-0028

And each OwlCrate box now comes with an exclusive pin to match the theme!

Owlcrate-March-2017-0006

And a hint for the upcoming box:

Owlcrate-March-2017-0007

Verdict: This box has a value of about $46 (using the Amazon sale prices and my estimates of some of these exclusive items). I think that’s a good value for a book box, especially with the curation, exclusive items, and bonus book extras that OwlCrate includes each month.

This is my favorite OwlCrate box in a while – I loved the book, and I’ll be using most of the bookish goodies, too!

How cute everything is! I remember seeing the spoilers for this box, and I didn’t even realize it’s a YA box. I like YA books from time to time, when I want to read something fun that I won’t have to think too hard about. I should’ve gotten this box. Oh well, at least I can get the book and that adorbs sloth notepad!

I wasnt too too enthused about this box. I only really liked the tea towel and necklace. The book sounds good but has a horrible cover.
